Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Collard Greens

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 packages (16-oz. each) collard greens, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1 smoked pork hock (about 1/2 lb.)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) chicken broth
  • 3 Tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Hot pepper sauce and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Reduce heat to low and add collards, a handful at a time, stirring until greens begin to wilt (about 10 minutes). Add 1/4 cup water to the pot after the first bag of greens to help wilt the greens faster.
  3. Place pork hock in bottom of slow cooker crock and add mixture from Dutch oven. Top with wilted collard green mixture.
  4. Combine broth, brown sugar, garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper in medium bowl; pour over collard greens.
  5. Cover and cook on HIGH 3 to 3 1/2 hours until collards are tender.
  6. Pull meat from ham hock, add to greens and serve with hot pepper sauce, freshly ground black pepper and cornbread.

Serves: 6-8
